So much going on around town this May Long Weekend! I love this weekend, it is my ‘official’ welcome to Summer weekend! Do all Canadians feel that way? Growing up, it was always our first camping weekend, and I have many fond memories of it! Enjoy the Rodeo or the Childrens Festival next week, it’s all Family FUN!

One of the longest running traditions in BC will feature the Fraser Valley’s largest midway along with a wide range of family entertainment including the Kidz Zone, Agri Zone & Art Zone, plus live outdoor entertainment all weekend.
